3D Bone Augmentation

Hard and Soft Tissue Considerations 

In bone augmentation procedures, there are both hard tissue and soft tissue perspectives that need to be considered to achieve a successful outcome. The focus of discussion will cover diagnostic tools, digital dentistry, the selection of the proper bone grafting materials and surgical techniques used for augmentation procedures. With the advancements in digital dentistry, the process of bone grafting has become more efficient and precise, leading to better outcomes for patients and more precise hard and soft tissue grafting procedures.

Soft tissue augmentation following bone augmentation procedures have a functional and esthetic role. Adequate soft tissue coverage is essential for protecting the underlying bone graft and maintaining long-term stability, while soft tissue contours and symmetry are important factors in achieving esthetics, a natural and harmonious appearance.

Overall, a comprehensive approach that considers both hard and soft tissue perspectives combined with digital workflow is essential for achieving successful outcomes in bone augmentation procedures in dentistry.
